Are you looking for an antenatal course that will empower you to prepare for your best birth?

Perhaps you’d like your birthing partner to understand how to help you feel calm and in control during the remainder of your pregnancy, during labour and birth and into the early days of motherhood?

Or maybe you are interested in learning about relaxation techniques that work and will remain useful in the weeks and years after you have birthed your baby?

Do you like the idea of getting to know others like you, sharing your worries and eating great biscuits together?

Or perhaps you would feel more relaxed in your own home and surroundings?

The KGHypnobirthing course is “simple, logical and profound.”

In the UK Hypnobirthing is known to every midwife and many, including those at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, have completed the Royal College of Midwives approved training in KG Hypnobirthing. It is practised internationally and is rapidly spreading throughout the world.

The course provides information, tools and techniques to prepare your mind and body, give you confidence and reduce your worries.

Simply Natal’s bespoke courses can work around you and your needs at any stage of pregnancy.
